    PD Pulse 150 in overall great condition. Original owner with custom colors (selling for a friend). DOM: 8/2015. 400 jumps on canopy, no cutaways or mistreatment, 0 jumps on new line set: It's on it's way to the manufacturer (PD) to get a brand new line set. PD does a full inspection and report will be available when I get it. I can probably have them ship it directly to the new owner, or it will be available in Southern California when It's back. Also had prior inspection by a master rigger, report states: "Overall in good condition, no damage whatsoever...". Only blemish is a 1 inch round patch on the slider. A new canopy costs over $2500 ($2,410.00 USD + tax & shipping). Best offer gets it. Key features: easy to pack, packs 1 size smaller (like a 135), longer/flatter glide which is good for coming back from long spots, smooth openings.

    PD 7-cell

    Using what was learned from the design of the PD 9-cell, Performance Designs released a 7-cell version. Constructed entirely of traditional low porosity fabric. Designed for skydivers looking for a canopy with traditional 7-cell characteristics, the PD 7-cell was a great choice for those interested in casual accuracy, demos, and CReW during its time.

    Velocity

    The Velocity's rigid cross-braced structure and extremely responsive controls make it a long-standing staple in the high-performance canopy piloting community. Incredibly clean aerodynamics give this powerful wing a wide speed range and amazing performance opportunities when in the right hands. From opening to landing, this is a very capable but very demanding canopy.
  6. admin

    Pulse

    From openings to landings, the Pulse is stress-free fun. It is a lightly-elliptical 9-cell canopy designed for novice to experienced fun jumpers. Pack volume has been reduced significantly by combining PD’s proprietary low- bulk fabric technology on the bottom skin and ribs with zero porosity fabric on the top skin. The Pulse offers soft, consistently on-heading openings with a shorter snivel. It has a very flat glide, short recovery arc, and easy landings. It is highly responsive, very capable, and lots of fun to fly!

    Navigator

    The Navigator offers an unparalleled combination of performance, forgiveness, and durability, while providing the ability to raise the level of student canopy piloting instruction. With its cutting edge design and construction, we are confident it will outperform any other student canopy and maintain this performance over a much longer life span. The Navigator, along with a progressive student canopy training program, will create safer and more competent canopy pilots.

    Valkyrie

    The Valkyrie builds on the dominating performance of the Peregrine and is designed as a step up from the Comp Velocity. Unlike the Peregrine, the Valkyrie was intended for freefall use, so the opening performance was a major consideration in the development of the canopy. And the openings on the Valkyrie are superb! Not to mention, it is simply a blast to fly. Whether you're filming tandems all day or dedicated to canopy piloting, the Valkyrie will reinvigorate the everyday jump and excite even the most passionate canopy pilots. We loved making it. You're going to love flying it.

    Storm

    With great openings and a powerful flare, the Storm is truly a 7-cell that thinks it's a 9-cell. While in some ways similar to the Spectre, the Storm has a shorter snivel, a steeper and faster glide, wider speed range, and more dynamic flare. Looking for a reliable canopy that will keep you challenged? Have you been searching for the perfect wingsuit canopy? Considering some occasional CF, but not ready to buy a second canopy? The Storm is a great option for you.
  10. admin

    Stiletto

    At the time of its release, the fully-elliptical 9-cell Stiletto was seen as the highest performance canopy available to the expert pilot. With improvements in canopy control technique over the years, the Stiletto has now become a very popular choice for experienced jumpers across many disciplines. For those who appreciate responsive handling, snappy turns, flat glide, a short recovery arc, and great landing capabilities, the Stiletto is a fun and practical way to enjoy your canopy flight.
  11. admin

    Storm CF

    The CF Storm is similar to the Storm, but altered to meet the needs of the serious CF competitor or CF demo jumper. It offers a great speed range, solid handling (even when your dock may not be picture perfect), and a powerful flare. The CF Storm comes standard with a mesh slider, which in addition to other design changes, provides quick sub-terminal openings.

    Proxy

    Performance Designs is venturing into the world of BASE. PD BASE. Since 2000, Performance Designs has been building the Ace and Blackjack BASE canopies for Consolidated Rigging. Building on the legacy and great reputation of Consolidated Rigging's BASE canopies, PD is excited to introduce the Proxy. Our mission was to build the ideal canopy for wing suit BASE and alpine flying. We wanted something that was low volume, low weight and high performing. We went to great lengths to exceed your expectations of what a low volume BASE canopy can be. With over 30% less volume and 20% less weight than standard construction BASE canopies, jumpers who desire the lightest and lowest profile container will love the Proxy. Whether you're hiking up that mountain or flying that line, you'll notice the reduced weight and drag. The Proxy is also a great flying canopy, with good on heading performance, a truly excellent glide ratio and powerful flare.

    Peregrine

    Built solely for canopy piloting competition, the Peregrine pushes the limits of what is possible in canopy flight. It is an ultra-high performance canopy, designed for top-tier competitive canopy pilots. Utilizing the Schuemann wing planform technology, new materials, and enhanced aerodynamics, PD created a wing that continues to dominate the podium.

    Valkyrie Hybrid

    You love your Valkyrie. You’ve been jumping her for the past two years. She gives you the buttery smooth openings, responsiveness, and power you crave! But you’re ready for more…and we’re ready to give it to you! Introducing the Hybrid Valkyrie – everything you love about the Valkyrie but more. We incorporated sail fabric into the ribs to give her more power, more responsiveness, and longer swoops than a standard construction Valkyrie. Think of her as a “Valkyrie on steroids” with more sensitivity in the harness and more stopping power than ever before. Available as an option when purchasing a custom wing, the sail ribs are a great addition for a seasoned or first-time Valkyrie owner. When choosing between the All ZP and Hybrid Valkyrie, keep in mind that the sail ribs will increase pack volume by about a half size in comparison to the All ZP Valkyrie. The overall lifespan of the canopy is similar to that of an all-ZP wing.

    Velocity Comp

    Since the release of the PD Velocity in 1999, Performance Designs learned lot about cross-braced canopies. While on the surface the Competition Velocity may look similar to a regular Velocity, it is a completely different machine. With improved aerodynamics, better openings, more powerful rear risers, and better slow flight characteristics on the toggles, the Competition Velocity is like a Velocity on steroids. If you are looking for a step up in opening, flight, and landing performance from your current cross-braced canopy, the Competition Velocity is for you.

    Zero

    Designed primarily for precision accuracy competition and accuracy-type demonstration jumps, the innovative and highly capable Zero is great for the traditional accuracy competitor. And with proper coaching, it is a great choice for those new to the discipline.

    Optimum Reserve

    The Optimum Reserve is made from a 30 denier low-permeability, low-bulk fabric available exclusively from Performance Designs. We've combined this fabric with special aerodynamics and extensive reinforcing to create great strength, better performance, and a far smaller pack volume for a given size. The Optimums are rated for maximum exit weights ranging from 220 pounds to as much as 290 pounds! This reserve has successfully been drop-tested at weights and speeds considerably higher than those required for FAA certification according to TSO C23d, the highest standard to-date. The Optimum flies and lands far more like a main parachute with a more powerful flare, by a wide margin, than any reserve we have ever tried.

    Sabre

    The original PD Sabre, like its successor, was designed to be fun to fly, easy to land, and a great choice for those looking for a general-purpose canopy. Built with zero porosity fabric, the Sabre maintains its opening, flight, and landing characteristics over a much longer life span than the conventional low porosity canopies designed during its time. The Sabre provides consistent on-heading openings. At higher wing loadings, it exhibits more responsiveness to control inputs and additional speed, while at lower wing loadings, it provides a longer control range and more forgiveness..
  19. admin

    Vengeance

    The Vengeance is one of the first airlock sport parachutes on the market. This 9-cell, all zero porosity fabric, is a noticeable step up from the Stiletto with a longer control range, steeper dive, and faster turns.
  20. admin

    Silhouette

    The lightly-tapered 9-cell Silhouette is designed to provide responsive handling, even at lower wing loadings often preferred by more conservative pilots. If you're looking for a docile, ‘no fuss’ canopy ride, the Silhouette is a great option for you. Due to the combination of fabrics used in the design, it is easy to pack, provides consistent openings with a short snivel, and has lots of flare power. It is best known for having a flat glide, short recovery arc, and easy-to-time flare. The Silhouette is a good choice for those seeking a canopy that is practical yet fun to fly.

    Horizon

    After years of development, we are excited to introduce PD’s first wingsuit-specific canopy HORIZON. The Horizon is a low-bulk 7-cell main canopy designed to be an easy ‘off button’ to end your wingsuit flight with as little drama as possible. The emphasis for developing this canopy was on eliminating deployment problems caused by the burble of larger wingsuits, without sacrificing a great flare or responsive handling. In fact, we think the Horizon has the best stopping power of any canopy in its class. Best of all, the Horizon gives you the ability to upsize as many as two full sizes compared to a non-crossbraced ZP canopy main, meaning you can fit a larger canopy in your existing rig for wingsuit jumps. No need for a new container!

    Sabre2

    The Sabre2 is a powerful semi-elliptical 9-cell canopy that is a great all-around choice for intermediate and experienced jumpers. Our most popular main canopy ever, the Sabre2 feels aggressive at higher wing loadings but is quite tame when lightly loaded. This canopy is best known for its powerful flare and wide speed range. With neat packing and proper deployment technique, Sabre2 openings are consistently soft and predictable. The Sabre2 has a steeper glide and a longer recovery arc than the flatter gliding Pulse or Stiletto and is an excellent choice for those wanting a bit more aggressive piloting experience but are not interested in the demands of the Katana or Velocity.
  23. admin

    Spectre

    The lightly-tapered 7-cell Spectre is one of the most popular canopies PD has ever produced. A surprisingly flat glide and soft on-heading openings (with plenty of snivel!) make the Spectre the canopy of choice for the professional cameraman or the everyday wingsuiter. The Spectre is also known for its smooth, progressive response on the toggles. If your priority is predictability, the Spectre is your canopy.
